The Columban Way is a Europe-wide cultural project, developing a route that crosses from north to south, linking up a network of historic sites, across the island of Ireland, England, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein and Italy.
During the current pandemic, for many people it is not feasible to walk some of the 590-km
route of Turas Columbanus/The Columban Way from Mt. Leinster on the Wexford/Carlow
border to Bangor, Co. Down. However, to mark National Heritage Week from 15th-23rd August
2020, the Association Friends of St. Columbanus has put together a Nine Step Turas
Columbanus/The Columban Way Pilgrim Heritage Walk that focuses on the central themes
and quotations from the letters and writings of St. Columbanus.
